THE BEACH CO.
There are few family businesses that have made such a lasting impact on their community as the Beach Co. a family owned and operated
real estate development firm based in Charleston, SC. Founded in 1945, and approaching its 75th anniversary, five generations have
passed on the company torch as a steward of the community—both from an economic and philanthropic standpoint. For decades, the
Beach Co. has delivered high-quality multifamily projects to key markets and is active in the following regions: Chattanooga, TN,
Nashville, Forest Acres, SC, Greenville, SC, Columbia, SC, Charleston, SC, Johns Island, SC, Summerville, SC and Myrtle Beach, SC. The
company takes a unique approach to development, resulting in each project being strikingly different from the next to cater to specific
demand drivers and the individuality of each market. One example of this is Canvas, a mixed-use community currently under development in the Heritage Green Arts District in downtown Greenville, SC. Upon completion, the project will include singlefamily attached
townhomes, ground-level retail, multifamily residences and an office building renovation. Canvas’ design will pay homage to the artistic
atmosphere of the neighborhood with a large-scale commissioned mural on the building’s façade.
